What’s the Deal with Admin Law?

Posted: August 16, 2020 by Nazim in Episode!

This week’s episode covers two administrative law decisions that were not covered in previous podcast episodes, including Selia Law v. CFPB (separation of powers concerns cut the head, but not the body of the Consumer Financial Protection Board), and Little Sisters of the Poor v. PA (Presidential interpretation of ACA which limits contraceptives doesn’t violate the law).  Law starts in earnest at (04:40), but goes on a long salad dressing tangent from (08:38-16-:18).

God One, Montana Zero

Posted: July 26, 2020 by Nazim in Episode!

Today’s unnervingly straight-laced episode covers the unnervingly chaotic decision in Espinoza v. Montana Dept of Revenue, wherein the Court takes turns yelling at each other about the Free Exercise Clause, the Establishment Clause, and Montana’s apparently oppressive effort to help kids go to school.  Law starts from the beginning.
